Jessica Straus is a wood sculptor from the Boston area.  Her carved and polychromed wood sculptures explore the poetry of unexpected juxtapositions between recognizable and invented forms.  Educated at Brown University, Kansas City Art Institute, and Cranbrook Academy of Art, she now works out of her studio in the Brickbottom Artists Building in Somerville, MA.  Her artwork is represented by the Clark Gallery, Lincoln, MA.  She has shown her work at numerous galleries and museums including the DeCordova Museum, the Addison Gallery of American Art, the Danforth Museum, the Duxbury Art Museum, the Berkshire Art Museum, the Fitchburg Museum, and the Fuller Craft Museum.  A recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council grant and a Berkshire Taconic Foundation grant, Jessica teaches sculpture and drawing at Concord Academy.
